3301 MEDICAL BIOLOGY

GENERAL INFORMATION
The Department of Medical Biology offers both master and PhD programs. Research opportunities exist in a variety of areas, including medical biology, cell biology, molecular genetics, cancer genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, and bioinformatics. The Master program is a 2 year program; first year students take compulsory and optional lectures to complete necessary credits. During the second year students complete their thesis to get a master degree. The Master program also provides an opportunity for eligible master students to carry on to a PhD degree.

Objective
This program enables students to gain a higher status in their education, to complete personal research projects and to prepare themselves for their future work life in the area of medical biology.


Admission Requirements
Students need an acceptable score on a centralized graduate entrance exam, and a placement through a local oral/written exam and a certificate of English proficiency.

Graduation Requirements
Requirements for registration to the Medical Biology master program is posted every year by The Institute of Health Sciences.

Career Opportunties
Students can start work as researchers at universities, at research institutes and in the private sector.

TEACHING & LEARNING METHODS
NameComments
LecturingLecturing is one of the methods that come first, where the teacher is in the center. It is a method where the teacher actively describes topics and the students are passive listeners. With this method, lesson proceeds in the form of report, description and explanation.
DebateDepending on the situation, debate is a tool that allows all students, or a specific portion of the class to participate in the lesson. In this method, members of the group discuss a topic by addressing the various points of view and discuss alternative opinions about problem-solving.
DemonstrationIn this method the teacher demonstrates, an experiment, test, in front of the class. And then assists students to do so too. Students learn not only by just by looking and watching, but also by taking part and participating. This method is usually applied when teaching skills.
Problem SolvingThe name given to any doubt or ambiguity that arises is, a problem. Problems which usually have a role in human life, that have preventing or annoying aspects are solved by considering the stages of scientific methods. (a) Problems are determined. (b) The problem is identified. 
Cooperative LearningCooperative Learning is; a kind of learning that is based on the students working together for a common purpose. Children with different skills come together in heterogeneous groups to learn by helping each other. Students gain experiences such as becoming aware of the unity
Questions –AnswersThe different types of Questions used (associative, differential, assessment, requesting information, motivating, and brainstorming) although students get in to more active positions during the process; the method is teacher-centered. If possible Questions, that serve a purpose and
Brainstorming Brainstorming is a group work process that has been regulated to reach solutions for a problem without limitations or evaluation. The purpose of brainstorming is to make it easier for students to express themselves and to generate ideas. This technique is used as a high-level discussion
